Do your kids have Father’s Day gifts all wrapped up? If they’re like mine, they’ve made a cute card at school, but want to have something to wrap up for Dad to give him on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 21st. I thought it would be a fun pun to use Dad’s shaving cream to make art, add a special note and create a laminated luggage tag that he can take on the road with him or wrap around his briefcase to take a little visual reminder of how much he’s loved everywhere he goes. Here’s how your kids can make a Father’s Day shaving cream art luggage tag.
This is a two-part post with the second part of the story over at Satsuma Designs. Here I’ll teach you how to make the art and at Satsuma Designs, I’ll show you how to create the personalized luggage tag to give Dad on Father’s Day.
What you need to make your Father’s Day Shaving Cream Art Luggage Tag
- Shallow baking pan or casserole dish at least 9″x13″
- Heavy white construction paper or card stock
- 1 can shaving cream – get the old fashioned foaming kind, not the gel kind
- Toothpicks or skewers
- Food coloring
- Washable splat mat or place mats
- Wire cooling rack to dry paper
How to make your Father’s Day Shaving Cream Art Luggage Tag
Start by setting up your work station with your splat mat. Ask kids if they want to wear a smock to protect their clothes from food coloring splatters.
Next, spray shaving cream into the base of your pan and use a spatula to spread into a flat layer, approx 1/4″ thick.
When shaving cream is ready, let kids drop food coloring into the shaving cream.
Use the toothpicks to spread the color around and through the shaving cream.
Gently place your paper on top of the shaving cream and press in a bit. Let sit for 1 minute
Now, gently pull the paper up and off of the shaving cream and use you spatula to wipe off excess shaving cream.
Lay paper to dry and voila!
